cannot reset hotmail password

ive forgotten my hotmail password and when i click onto the reset password link and fill in my email address and country of origin, this is the message i get:  
You will not be able to reset your password. You must sign in using the correct password to regain access to this .NET Passport. You can register for a new .NET Passport using a different e-mail address.
how do i gain access to my account without having to cancel the account and set up a new one.

Have you contacted hotmail customer service yet ? I know it happened to one of my friends when he lost password. They were able to reset the password once he gave all the old passwords he used ,to them

Check with them and that would solve your issue fast

Do you mean you have emailed them or posting a question/concern in their website ?

Try to do from a different browser (if you have ) to see it would do the same.

May be hotmail server is down not accepting those requests.. you may want to try sending it again and see if that would help

i have followed according to the article but still failed. hotmail only allows me to enter my email address and country of origin. atfer that i receive this message:

You will not be able to reset your password. You must sign in using the correct password to regain access to this .NET Passport. You can register for a new .NET Passport using a different e-mail address.

I think that hotmail is not allowing you to reset the password because.


The first few times when you tried to reset your passwords you entered a false information. Hotmail keeps your ID safe and wont allow any modifications

The best practice would be to wait for a week or so and try again after wards
